to be here with all of them. senator john mccain, who needs no introduction. >> but he always appreciate it. [laughter] i would just like to very briefly say that i thank senator enhofe for his attention tot his issue. -- senator inhofe and others on this issue. he pointed out the devastating effect of sequestration. if it is implemented, it will cut every ship, truck, a tank, research and development across the board. the secretary of defense panetta, a man that i admire greatly, called sequestration a meat ax approach. i think it is important to note, according to one economic analysis, it costs a loss of $350 in full-time direct jobs, 650,000 indirect job losses. that is a lot of jobs. my friends, in these difficult times. secretary panetta said, "this has become a very serious threat to our national security." para chairman of the joint chiefs of staff says the same thing. in the late 1970's, after the vietnam war, the chief of staff testified before congress that we had a "hollow army," which then caused the attention of the american people and one of the reasons why ronald reagan was

the defense budget. last week at a constituents' meeting, senator john mccain said that these sequester cuts could significantly undermine military programs. quote, we're facing a situation where our national security is at risk. senator mccain said, adding that furloughs could affect as many as 49,000 military and defense jobs in arizona. well, i tell you in georgia what's going to happen is that 37,000 civilian department of defense employees will be furloughed, reducing gross pay by $190 million and army base funding would be cut by $233 million. and funding for air force operations would be cut by $5 million. this is in the state of georgia. this is for this fiscal year, this current fiscal year. can you imagine that much money coming out of the economy and not having an impact on the overall economy? it certainly will. let's take all of those who travel. you go to the airport. you rely on the air traffic controllers to make sure that the planes are situated and flying safely so that nobody is going to bump into each other up there in the sky. you're dependent on your t.s.a. personnel to

of them are willing to cut people is to do what they would otherwise do. when lindsey gramm and john mccain are saying that this is really crazy stuff, you know there are people both in the senate and house that get it and want to avoid this. anybody on the defense side, everybody knows we have to trim our sails. at least we should allow the secretary to make the decisions as opposed to this crazy across the board. >> talking about the budget issue your state is facing. you had to raise taxes in your state to meet the budget deficit. what is the way ford for governors in this country who are facing similar scenarios? you raise taxes. and other states that is not tenable. is that a mix of spending cuts and tax increases? >> i was the first democrat elected governor and 24 years. the outgoing governor handed me a deficit larger than any other state in the nation representing 17% of revenue. there was no way to cut your way out of it. there was no way to tax arena of it. you had to do both. we had to respect the relationship as the employees and we did both of those things. so much so t
